Your phone just made a sound, but you’re busy using your PC. Do you pick up your phone, unlock it, and look at the notifications? Don’t bother — just have all your Android notifications appear on your computer.

When you try to add the extension to Chrome on your PC, you get a box asking if you're sure you want to install it, and tells you what privileges you are giving the extension:
It can read and modify all your data on the websites you visit
It can access your tabs and browsing activity
Then it says "Make sure that these privileges make sense for what you think the extension needs to do. If they do not, click cancel."
I don't see why it needs all of that just to send me a copy of my tablet's notifications.

As I understand it, those are generic permission requests. I haven't seen a single Chrome Extention or App that doesn't request that. Besides, as was mentioned in the article, PushBullet can do a lot more than just send notifications to your PC, those could explain the other permissions.

there's also a native windows app in case someone doesn't use chrome, seems to work fine so far

@Sebastian_Schuh I'd rather have an app, than something that runs in chrome. What's it called?

I think there was a link when you signup, seems unaccessible afterwards...
anyway here it is:
oh, just so you don't have to download an executable from some random amazon instance, found it referred to here, too:
